Toho Tenax Co. Ltd, the core company of the Teijin Group's carbon fibers and composites business, has developed a lightweight multi-material roof cover for a fuel-cell bus made of carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP), aluminum and other lightweight engineering plastics.

The roof cover, which boasts a visually appealing surface, can be manufactured in one large piece with complex shapes and is suitable for mass production. It is currently adopted for the world's first mass-produced fuel-cell bus, which was developed by Toyota Motor Corporation.

Toho Tenax collaborated with GH Craft Ltd, the Teijin Group's composite structure design, development and evaluation unit, to develop the multi-material roof based on its high performance carbon fiber and mass-production know-how and GH Craft's molding technology.

Continental Structural Plastics Holdings Corporation (CSP), a global leader in automotive lightweight composite technologies, joined the Teijin Group in January 2017 to enhance global-development capabilities as a Tier One supplier and solution provider of multi-material components and design.
